  2. DISKPART CLEAN

    Hello

    I'm Peter F independent Advisor

    You will get this error when you are using diskpart clean command on system disk. The system disk contains the Windows operating system files and other critical files, if you are allowed to clean the system disk, all the data and partitions will be gone. That
    will result in a lot of errors and chaos. Meanwhile, the delete volume is greyed out in Disk Management. In this case, the new SSD drive may be regarded as the system disk due to the system files, etc.

    Using Windows installation disc to clean

    If you have the Windows installation disc, you can follow these steps to solve clean is not allowed issue in Windows 7/8/10:

    1. Insert the Windows installation disc, then boot from it.

    2. Click Repair your computer> Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Command Prompt.

    3. Then input the diskpart commands to clean hard disk:

    diskpart

    list disk

    select disk [disknumber]

    clean

    Diskpart Clean

    Then you could create a new partition on the drive to solve this problem.

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    If you are trying to delete one particular partition, you can format the partition and see if that helps. To format the partition, on the installation screen select the partition that you want to format and click on
